Shinji Mikami: There aren’t any real survival horror games in the world right now

23 Apr

Hard words said by the father of the survival horror genre Shinji Mikami (you know, the creator of the original Resident Evil saga), that after officially announcing his new project, The Evil Within, published by Bethesda, had a little talk with IGN guys. Here’s what he said:

“For me, personally, why I came back to survival horror is that survival horror as a genre is becoming all action now. There aren’t any real survival horror games in the world right now. That is the biggest motivation for me. Having the player pick up the controller and being genuinely able to say ‘Wow, I haven’t played a game this scary in ages!’, that is what we are after. That is the main thing we are focused on”

We really hope that Mikami will deliver us a splendid old-school survival horror, but till 2014 we can just wait and cross our fingers!

The Evil Within

 

After some really cryptic vine posts (like this one, this one and this one) Bethesda has finally revealed its new project, and despite all the fans’ odds it won’t be Fallout 4, but The Evil Within.

No excitement? Wait, did we mention that the game will be directed by the father of the survival horror genre Shinji Mikami? Yep, the bloody creator of the original Resident Evil series! In fact, according to Bethesda, The Evil Within will be an old school survival horror! But let’s take a look at the announcement trailer.

The game is planned for a 2014 release on next generation consoles, but for now that’s all we got, apart from those screens below. Said so, it’s safe to say that we’re utterly excited about The Evil Within, especially for our god Shinji Mikami back to the survival horror genre!

Fear the unknown with Darkwood

darkwood survival horror

Darkwood is an upcoming top-down, old school survival horror set in a procedurally generated open world, so every single time you play, you’ll find a different environment and experience. It features some RPG elements with intense fights and a very dark atmosphere.

The game is currently developed by Acid Wizard, and indie studio composed by just three people, and will be available for PC on a TBA date.

In their website, the developers explain some of the key features of Darkwood, such as the permadeath (if you die, your savegames get deleted and you have to start over), the skills set and the crafting.

The game is in a pre-aplha stage, but you can take a look at it with this trailer.
